"A friend gave me this recipe for hamentaschen, the traditional pastry of the Jewish holiday of Purim. The filling is more likely to please an adult than a child. To use up all the filling takes somewhere between one and two batches of dough. These freeze well. I'm totally guessing on the time it takes to make them. They aren't quick, but worth the effort!"

"I can't say that these are the 'Best Ever!' but then I've never had ANY hamentaschen before, so.... However, these are VERY, VERY GOOD, that I know! I made just half a batch, however, because I had yet another recipe for a poppy seed version, & wanted to try both. This one I really like, probably because of the dried fruits & the orange, & the lemon & the RAISINS! Totally lost track of the time while preparing them, but it was long [& a lot of fun!]. There's no way these will last through or even to the Jewish holiday of Purim, but then I'm not Jewish [just enjoy making some of the traditional recipes!]. Many thanks for sharing!"
